Yea, Walt, but Olivia Newton John is just as, uh, talented (not the word I started to type). And, she can actually sing, too.

A movie came out a few years ago - title - The Commitments. It's not a musical per se..as it was about a musical group. But oh man! The music is great! And if you can get into the lilt of the Irish accents, it's a great movie. It's one of the few that I've purchased.


So what qualifies a movie to be classed as a 'musical'?  I remember the 'My Fair Lady', 'Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' genre.

Is 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' a musical?

I finally got Moulin Rouge out and watched it again...its whimsical and the music is there to move along the story and I think that makes a musical in my mind.

Monsters Inc. is waaaaay overrated!

My wish list is to see Waking Life, Memento, and Muholland Drive (sp?) Can anyone tell me if they are as good as the critics say?

Memento is fabulous!!! It's a movie you have to WATCH, not watch and fold laundry or something.

Another good rental is "The Claim"...no big stars and it's set in the Sierra Nevada mountains in winter and looks COLD. But it's a good story and the acting is first rate.

Memento is really good, but be prepared to think about it for about two straight hours afterward. Best viewed with an intellingent friend you can discuss it with.

LOL @ Walt!

Yes...Memento is EXCELLENT!!!  One of the best
'mystery' movies I've seen in a long time.
I absolutely loved it!

I just saw 'A Beautiful Mind' this past weekend,
and it's awesome!  I, too, left the theater
saying 'WOW'.  It was simply amazing.

OH...and I have to echo Sharon...The Commitments is great!

There are actually several movies coming out
that I would like to see.  Looks like it's
going to be a good movie year.

My all time favourite movie would have to be The Shawshank Redemption. I haven't seen anything that compares with it.
I thought Moulin Rouge was pretty good, but then I am an Aussie.
Another Aussie movie I like, although it doesn't have much to think about (except Hugh Jackman ) is Paperback Hero.

I saw 'Gosford Park' yesterday - if you like an old fashioned murder mystery with a bit of comedy set in the 1930's English countryside, you'll love this. I did. But there are so many characters in this and the accents took about 30 minutes to get the hang of, that I'm going back to see it again.   I recommend it.

Sounds like a cool movie...I'll have

My husband wanted to see "Lord of the Rings" so being a good wife I said sure lets go. We had both read all of the Hobbit books so we knew more or less what to expect, so I thought. We sat there for 3 hours and were not thrilled. Our imagination is better than the movie. Thank goodness we went for the early showing, it was cheap. Did not enjoy how it ended at all. Told hubby we will buy VCR and rent movies from now on.

mmmkay, here goes.

the Good:

12 monkeys
shawshank redemption
the green mile
apocalypse now ("i love the smell of napalm in the morning")
edward scissorhands, just for the visuals
the city of lost children
crouching tiger, hidden dragon
eat drink man woman
fight club

the Bad:

vanilla sky
eyes wide shut
anything with glenn close set in the role of the seductress (ewwwwwww)
final fantasy: the spirits within (i own all the games (yes, all) and it made me hate the movie)

the Ugly:

the Thing (john carpenter)
in the mouth of madness (john carpenter again)
halloween (john carpenter YET AGAIN)
the watcher in the woods (come on, a DISNEY horror movie)

there you have it.
i refuse to discuss harry potter other than to say she's the RICHEST AUTHOR IN HISTORY,
and LOTR - good, but i reserve judgement until i've seen all three.

george lucas should be beaten with a whiffle bat until he cries and surrenders the Staw Wars license to someone who will A: re-release the ORIGINAL version of the trilogy on DVD, before all the "added footage" for five-year-olds, and B: kill off Jar Jar Binks.

there, i have gone on long enough i think.

12 Monkees is in my top ten for sure o best movies of all time its Directed by Terry Gilliam who also did Baron Manchousen (sp?), Time Bandits, and Brazil. Those are the ones I seen at least and I am a big fan of his works although I wouldn't recommend them to no one. except 12 monkees and still I might get hit.

Final Fantasy was pretty cool in my opinion I kept drooling over the lead "actress" I want her bad man!

O Brother and Shrek rule!

and not so weird that I could even classify it as weird to me. I am just trying to put myself in your shoes. See if I think it is weird then that makes me less weird because somehow this movie is weirder because I think it is weird and we all know true intelligence stems from the excessively weird I mean eccentric people that gotta go see Mullholand Drive because they can then say "naw it wasn't weird at all" and "yuh I understood every bit of it because I am smarter then it" but really they just liked the lesbian scenes but that isn't me....no
